Going to post in detail about my squats sometime soon. Lots to tell.
But for now - huge deadlift PR today: 245lbs! Felt like I was going to pass out after 1 rep, but that’s enough for me :)
2,200 calories today - nice little surplus to refuel. Back to the 1,800 range tomorrow.
Back home. Hit the gym on vacation 4 out of the 5 full days I was there (not including the day I arrived), but also had some pretty ridiculous eats and drank excessively on two occasions.
So, we’re back to the grind now. Eating clean (no alcohol, added sugar or processed carbs), trying to get enough sleep, etc.
I really, really want to be leaner. I want to lift heavier, too, but I think I’m going to focus on fat loss for a little bit and see how it goes.
Also really wish I was still here:
I was 131ish on Sept 2nd when I started cutting, and lost a couple in that first week, but didn’t do another weigh in after that. I was worried about what my Asia trip did, but it looks like my as-frequent-as-possible workouts, fairly balanced food choices, and miles upon miles of walking kept me on track. Great news :)
